Leading for Equity

School Leaders are supported to create inclusive student policies, address biases and build a platform to enhance student voices and leadership.

School Leaders are equipped with the skills to develop effective action plans and conduct self-evaluations of their schools.

Program Pillars

The School Leadership Program is designed to evolve through the two years in a way that balances theory and practice and is relevant to the context of each school.


School Leaders are introduced to content that is designed based on the principles of adult learning and grounded in reality. Our content is directly applicable to improving teaching and learning in schools and becoming a more effective school leader.


School Leaders are supported with on-going coaching, coupled with school self-evaluation tools to accurately measure their progress, keeping all stakeholders, including parents, involved.


The community built amongst the cohort of School Leaders allows for an exchange of learning and provides a platform for sharing best practices.

What makes GSL’s School Leadership Program unique?

Responding to the Global Pandemic (Covid-19)

Schools need extensive support as they rebuild and restructure during and post this pandemic. At GSL, we are driven to continue finding new avenues to share knowledge and resources and support.

Project UPYA

We have developed a new all-access digital support tool. UPYA is an open-source, self-sustaining program manual for organizations training school leaders. We have packed in our entire training program, best practices, and workshop frameworks into UPYA for easy access for all.

Taking School Leader Training Online

We have assisted our partners in taking all their School Leadership training workshops online. Taking sessions online has resulted in easier access to data, feedback and impact assessment.


Global School Leaders is a non-profit organization focused on improving student learning outcomes in under-resourced school across low and middle income countries through innovative, on-the-job training programs for School Leaders. GSL brings nearly a decade of experience in designing and delivering school leadership training in developing countries.
